Whenever I visit Manhattan, Mimi's is always a must stop in the evening before I head back to my hotel. Although there are much better restaurants in NYC, very few places can match the character of this neighborhood piano bar with its snappy bartender, inexpensive drinks, late-night food service, and regular clientele who pack this place night-after-night to hear Chicken...

I'm not sure why Mimi's is 1,411 out of 8,922; I would rate it in the first 300 restaurants out of 8,922. We had such a nice evening dining out at Mimi's. We invited our nephew and one of my best friends to dine with us while we are in town. Not sure where to go, we chose Mimi's due... More

The food here was average with it being far from the best spaghetti bolognaise I'd ever had. Service was poor and quite rude at times whilst the venue itself packs in too many tables and is cramped and noisy.

My friends and I have been coming to Mimi's to celebrate every December 23rd for the past 20 years. Mimi's has a great bar, a good piano player and excellent Italian food across the menu. Make reservations because it is a small restaurant, then come and enjoy a marvelous dinner, drinks and dessert. The service is excellent, the bathrooms are... More

Mimi's is a quaint little restaurant with a lot of personality. From the hostess to the waitstaff to the bartenders this place makes you feel like home in the big city. But the most incredible part of dining and dining at Mimi's is Chicken Delicious. A true artist in so many ways the piano will melt your heart, the jokes... More

From service to food, everything is personal and perfect. One feels the care in every detail. A real find in New York in which the small personal restaurant is a very rare breed.

The food was beautiful and was really authentic - be wary of huge portion sizes though, we couldn't finish our food! Staff were lovely and really helpful, but the highlight of the night was the piano players - earlier in the evening the piano player sang Christmas songs and it was beautiful and really added to the atmosphere.

We enjoyed our visit to Mimi's the atmosphere and certain touches made it feel very family orientated. Service was good. Food was average. But for the money was a nice meal out

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
